World Invocation Day
June 16, 2019
World Invocation Day is a world day of prayer and meditation when men and women of every spiritual path join in a universal appeal to divinity and use The Great Invocation. Together, they focus the invocative demand of humanity for the Light, the Love, and the spiritual direction needed to build a world of justice, unity and peace.
To use The Great Invocation is world service, for it speaks directly to world need today. We need light to illumine the way ahead and reveal the vision of a new civilization; we need love to govern the relationships between people and bring to an end the reign of hatred and separatism; we need the power of the will-to-good to dirrect human choice and decision making. The universal use of The Great Invocation on World Invocation day charges this day with deep spiritual significance, for it builds a channel through which light, love, and power can reach and irradiate the hearts and minds of people everywhere.
Each year since 1952, people everywhere have celebrated World Invocation Day through the use of The Great Invocation, joining in the affirmation of the oneness of humanity, the livingness of our relationship to God and the responsibility of humanity for the working out of the divine Plan on earth.
